At times the world can seem an unfriendly and sinister place, but believe us when we say there is much more good in it than bad. All you have to do is look hard enough. And what might seem to be a series of unfortunate events, may, in fact, be the first steps of a journey.

Every exit is an entry somewhere else.
The border means more than a customs house, a passport officer, a man with a gun. Over there everything is going to be different; life is never going to be quite the same again after your passport has been stamped.

Reading departure signs in some big airport
Reminds me of the places I’ve been
Visions of good times that brought so much pleasure
Makes me want to go back again

I am going away… to an unknown country where I shall have no past and no name, and where I shall be born again with a new face and an untried heart.
The perfect journey is never finished, the goal is always just across the next river, round the shoulder of the next mountain. There is always one more track to follow, one more mirage to explore.

Anywhere I roam
Where I lay my hat is home
And the earth becomes my throne
I adapt to the unknown
Under wandering stars I’ve roamed
By myself but not alone
- “Wherever I May Roam”, Metallica

Travel at its truest is thus an ironic experience, and the best travelers - and travel writers - seem to be those able to hold two or three inconsistent ideas in their minds at the same time, or able to regard themselves as at once serious persons and clowns.
- The Fellowship of the Ring, J.R.R. Tolkien

If people and their manner of living were alike everywhere, there would not be much point in moving from one place to another.
